    AMS/IP Studies in Advanced Mathematics
    Volume: 21997; 604 pp
    MSC: Primary 57;

    This is Part 1 of a two-part volume reflecting the proceedings of the 1993 Georgia International Topology Conference held at the University of Georgia during the month of August. The texts include research and expository articles and problem sets. The conference covered a wide variety of topics in geometric topology.

    Features:

    • Kirby's problem list, which contains a thorough description of the progress made on each of the problems and includes a very complete bibliography, makes the work useful for specialists and non-specialists who want to learn about the progress made in many areas of topology. This list may serve as a reference work for decades to come.
    • Gabai's problem list, which focuses on foliations and laminations of 3-manifolds, collects for the first time in one paper definitions, results, and problems that may serve as a defining source in the subject area.

    Titles in this series are copublished with International Press, Cambridge, MA.

    Titles in this series are co-published with International Press of Boston, Inc., Cambridge, MA.
